Backin’ up the Smack Talk

I’m the world’s worst smack talker. Just ask my husband or close friends who love to rip on me about my beloved Fightin’ Texas Aggie Football Team, who has a 31.4% win rate against our rivals, the Texas Longhorns.

I struggle with “talking smack” because it’s hard to argue against the truth.  No matter how passionately I might feel about my team, we lose to UT in 2 out of every 3 games.  There is not much room for smack talk when the stats clearly communicate who is the leader.  There is no better way to speak the truth than by looking at the numbers.

Last week the Run Walk Ride Fundraising Council, an independent group focused on supporting the non-profit fundraising event industry, released its 2011 report of the top 30 fundraising events in the US.   I’m really proud to say that Convio TeamRaiser remains the undeniable leader in the special event fundraising industry.  This is just fact, I’ll let the numbers speak for themselves…
